writer in the clinton white house. how are you? >> i'm good, toure. how are you? >> they're three traditional disadvantages every incumbent will face in the debate context. number one, standing on stage alongside the president is ennobling for the challenger. it's hard to do debate prep because of their job. number three, they lived for years in this bubble where everyone's differential and nobody is challenging them. they're like a king. they're standing in front of millions of people and someone saying you're not doing your job ri right. am i missing anything? >> the one about the bubble in particular is a serious thing. you're president of the united states almost four years. you get into discussions and debate about policy. your staff may disagree, but there's an element of deference. you're a commander in chief. suddenly the job of the debate is to break that all down and take it apart and get them to become again someone who does it. the real trick in debates is to get under your opponent's skin. you get them to crack, that demonstrates the lack of confidence people like to

hour fox news has obtained a letter that will be sent to hillary clinton tomorrow morning. this letter is from congressman jason chavitz. it reads in part, the full committee anticipates convening a hearing on october 10th, 2012, to consider the security situation in banghazi leading up to the september 11th attack. the attack that claimed the ambassador's life was the latest in a long line of attacks on western diplomats and officials in libya in the months leading up to this attack. it was clearly never as the administration has once insisted, the result of a popular uprising or protest. what you're looking at now is exclusively obtained photos from congressman chaffetz and the committee showing one of those attacks prior to the hit on our consulate that cost four americans their lives. these pictures are an attempted assassination on the british ambassador to libya in banghazi back in june. a two-car convoy in that case carrying the british ambassador was literally coming from a conference, attacked in broad daylight by a militant with an rpg. these are never-before-seen photos, and
